The Kodak PlayTouch would be a great pocket camcorder if not for two major issues: the video quality and the limits imposed on the display. I’ll give Kodak a pass for the thin-plastic build as it is probably a tradeoff for the PlayTouch’s light weight.

It’s a shame too, because the external mic input is enough to make me do flips, and overall, the PlayTouch has an attractive design, very responsive touchscreen and offers great shooting features, including in-camera editing. I also give Kodak high marks for including the HDMI cable and carrying pouch.

Overall however, I have to say the PlayTouch is a misfire for Kodak, but one that could easily be fixed with a tweak to the display function and a return to PlaySport video quality.
